"Star Wars" Superbit DVDs - legit?

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by Keith Pomakis, Jun 30, 2006.

  1. I recently game across the following two items on e-Bay:

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/Star-Wars-Beginn...ryZ41575QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
    http://cgi.ebay.ca/Star-Wars-Trilog...ryZ41575QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    In case you can't see these for some reason, they claim to be
    "authentic", "original", and a "very rare promotional release" of Star
    Wars, episodes I through VI, in Superbit(TM) format. I'm skeptical
    about this, for a number of reasons. First of all, it's claimed that
    these DVDs are region free. I have little doubt that this is so, but I
    doubt that an "authentic original" release would be released this way.
    Also, I see no mention at all anywhere on the web of "Star Wars" being
    released in Superbit format. Thirdly, isn't Superbit a
    Sony/Columbia/Tristar series, and isn't Star Wars distributed by Fox?
    Waddya think about the legitimacy of these DVDs?
